its illustrious history, Compton Courtyard has housed eminent groups of
creative tenants, including shoe manufacturers, engravers and printers.
The street-facing building facade lacked creativity and energy, so we designed
the 11×5 metre mural to increase street presence and create a visual identity
to reflect the hidden courtyard behind the gates.
Using a greenery inspired palette, we drew inspiration from the
plants within the concealed courtyard – layering our sketches into a junglelike
landscape. The overlaying pattern and zest of colour expresses the freedom of
creative minds found within Compton Courtyard and this was also extracted
and applied within the interior entrance, providing a striking fluidity
between the inside and out.
